It's said that if you put a million monkeys at a million typewriters, eventually you will get the works of William Shakespeare. When you put together a million humans, a million camcorders, and a million computers, what you get is YouTube.

And there they are, in the bedrooms and dorms and cubicles of the world, uploading their asses off, more than 65,000 times a day on YouTube alone.

"If you aren't posting, you don't exist," says Rishad Tobaccowala, CEO of Denuo, a new media consultancy. "People say, 'I post, therefore I am.'"

Your own broadcast - ?

MyTunesRSS 2.3.1 - VersionTracker:

"MyTunesRSS is 100% pure Java, i.e. it runs on any system with Java1.5 and up. You start MyTunesRSS which includes an embedded Tomcatserver. On this server you can access a web application with anybrowser which lets you search your iTunes library by title and/orartists. Then you can create an RSS feed or an M3U playlist from theresults.

Any device capable of receiving RSS feeds or M3Uplaylists can get the songs from your iTunes library through the feed.For example the Playstation Portable can play songs from your iTuneslibrary over WLAN with this application."

I'll give it a test drive...

Blogged with Flock

Testing testing...

I'm test driving the new 'Flock" browser, to see how 'blog-friendly' it is.

I dragged this picture in from my Flickr account...

Here is the URL to the BONGO NATION Myspace homepage:

BONGO NATION are Geordie Gardiner and Tom Ludvigson playing their ownroots reggae and dub inspired repertoire. The roots of the BONGO NATIONproject go back to early summer 2005 when Geordie and Tom were on tourin Northland with an Auckland reggae band. Inspired by that experience,Tom spent the rest of that summer tracing the roots of Jamaican dub toAfrican drum music while writing his own BONGO NATION riddims.As the collection of new riddims grew Tom created the BONGO NATIONwebsite and started posting recordings of the new riddims on the web.By early autumn Geordie had joined the project, the duo now jamming onthe BONGO NATION riddims and letting them grow into songs.Towards then end of winter there was enough new BONGO NATION songs torecord and produce an EP. Recording sessions were held in August 2006at Aucklands Rockynook Studios. The outcome of these sessions was thefour songs that make up the BONGO NATION EP Good Vibration.

Brave New World

Today Google rules a total database of hundreds of petabytes, swelled every 24 hours by terabytes of Gmails, MySpace pages, and dancing-doggy videos – a relentless march of daily deltas, each larger than the whole Web of a decade ago.
